[Edit] - revised chart with the rest of the schools Sept 20,2006 - Dave
The big change for this year is that Columbia and HAAS break into the top 5.
I'll post the other numbers later. Here's what I have for now. If you'd like to see the Wall Street Journal Video Summary, just click on the pic below. (Free to all guests)
Please remember that the Wall Street Journal Rankings are based on Recruiter Rankings. That means, schools that aren't willing to do all that Recuiters ask for probably don't get ranked very high. I'm not totally sure how competitive recruiters can get, but there is only so much time in a day and students usually get screwed for time when too many companies come in to town to talk with them.
From the Interview Video: Tuck and Ross flip back and forth because they do such a good job with practical business issues in the classrooms. Students are therefore generally more prepared for the work force with realistic notions.
HAAS was described as a collaborative team oriented and technology focused school. Columbia is strong with it's financial focus because SO many of it's grads go into the financial sector.
Harvard and Stanford grads were cited for being Arrogant. They are unrealistic in salary expectations and job responsibilities.
Before jumping on my comments, these are nearly verbatim comments taken from Ron Alsop of the Wall Street Journal. I didn't craft these statements.
Additional Rankings: (Taken from Accepted.com who poasted them earlier this evening-thanks again) Regional picks: 1. Thunderbird (Garvin) 2. Ohio State University (Fisher) 3. Brigham Young University (Marriott) 4. Purdue University (Krannert) 5. Michigan State University (Broad)
Some major moves to notice are: 1) Carnegie Melon fell off the list of top 24 when they were #3 last year and the year before. Is this a typo? What happened?
2) EGADE, Mexico came out of nowhere to enter the 7 spot. They weren't even ranked last year.
3) Columbia breaks the top 10 for International? Geez.
4) INSEAD, Harvard and Stanford look as though they're about to fall off the top 24 chart. They each fell 9 slots, 3 slots, and 6 slots respectively. Which is nothing to laugh at.
